Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has held talks about taking over at Swansea City, according to reports.

The 42-year-old, who spent 29 years at Old Trafford as a player and coach, has been heavily linked with a return to his homeland following Francesco Guidolin's indifferent start to the season.

The Times are reporting that Giggs met with club representatives on Wednesday following Swansea's dismal display in a 2-1 defeat to Man City's second-string side in the EFL Cup.
